The CTOPP-2 can be used to help evaluate phonological processing abilities as a prerequisite to reading fluency. The revised version of this popular assessment is now appropriate for use with children as young as 4 years old. The assessment features all new normative data and a new phonological awareness subtest, Phoneme Isolation.

Users & Applications

Use CTOPP-2 to help:

  • Identify individuals whose phonological abilities are significantly below their peers
  • Determine strengths and weaknesses in phonological processing skills
  • Document progress in phonological processing following intervention
  • Collect data for phonological processing research

Content & Administration

Levels:

  • Ages 4–6
  • Ages 7–24

Subtests:

  • Elision
  • Blending Words
  • Sound Matching
  • Phoneme Isolation
  • Blending Nonwords
  • Segmenting Nonwords
  • Memory for Digits
  • Nonword Repetition
  • Rapid Digit Naming
  • Rapid Letter Naming
  • Rapid Color Naming
  • Rapid Object Naming

Supplemental tests: Use the supplemental tests to assess specific phonological strengths and weaknesses.

Composites:

Phonological Awareness Component Scores (PACS) represents awareness of and access to the phonological structure of oral language.

Phonological Memory Component Scores (PMCS) helps to measure the ability to code information phonologically for temporary storage in working or short-term memory.

The Rapid Symbolic Naming Composite Score (RSNCS) measures the ability to include efficient retrieval of phonological information from long-term or permanent memory and execute a sequence of operations quickly and repeatedly.

Rapid Non-Symbolic Naming Composite Score (RNNCS) measures the ability to include efficient retrieval of phonological information from long-term or permanent memory and execute a sequence of operations quickly and repeatedly using objects and colors.

The Alternate Phonological Awareness Composite Score (APACS), an alternate composite for measuring phonological awareness, is available for 7 through 24 year olds. The APACS measures phonological awareness exclusively with nonwords, memory, as well as the ability to execute a sequence of operations quickly and repeatedly
